Leier is expected to skate on the Flyers’ top line on Wednesday.

Leier has just one goal and one assist in eight games since being called-up, but has averaged just 8:28 TOI per game. On Wednesday, it looks like he will get a bigger opportunity as he skated with Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek during Tuesday’s practice.

The Flyers have recalled Taylor Leier from Lehigh Valley (AHL).

Leier, 22, was a fourth round pick (117 overall) in 2012 and is expected to make his season debut on Tuesday. Leier has been recalled because Matt Read (upper-body) will miss approximately four weeks. Leier has picked up 20 points (6G / 14A) in 22 games with Lehigh Valley this season, but has failed to record a point in his first six NHL games.
